This month I thought that I would write a blog about how to make a digital swap page or plopper.
What you do is start with a blank layer (transparent). I make mine 12" x 12" at 300ppi. Then drag a background paper onto this layer. At this point I usually create the "hole" for a photo. In this case a rectangle. To do this use the rectangle selection tool and make the rectangle which shows up as a shape outlined by marching ants. Then go to edit>cut and enter and voila - you have your place for your photo.
Then you can add to your hearts content. My layout with Club Scrap's beautiful Take Wing Collection has a horizontal gradient tint layer added and a couple of embellishments and a word stamp.
